A Reasonable Man tells the story of a city lawyer who comes across the case of a herdboy from remote, rural Zululand, who has killed a one year old baby in the mistaken belief that he was killing an evil spirit, known throughout Southern Africa as the "Tikoloshe". Dark Secrets which lie buried deep within the lawyer connect him to the boy. He takes the case and enters a world of African witchcraft and mysticism to discover the truth about the killing - and himself.Written by

Both white and black may be possessed by demons. These evil spirits needs to be removed. This unique film explores the depth of possession across two cultures, one a white lawyer, the other a black herdsman. Set in KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, with excellent trial scenes ennobled by Nigel Hawthorne as the judge, and one who is willing to search for truth and reconciliation. Five stars to Gavin Hood for developing the story and acting it to such perfection. Though based on a true event in 1933 this story is relevant to Southern Africa today and the new South Africa. A must for discerning film goers.
